WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY

HEY THERE ALL YOU SENIORS!  Today was Social Security deposit day for us.  Thank goodness!  It is a long wait between "pay days" LOL.  Does anyone share my sentiments??  Each year the SS gives us a tiny cost of living raise which promptly catapults the chain reaction of our health insurance cost increasing, our lot lease in our community and anything else that can take advantage of it!  Of course this year the government opted to NOT give seniors a cost of living raise nor will we get one next year even though everything else goes up in cost for us.  Now if you were most prepared and had pension plans, IRA's and huge savings, you are okay.  But we did not have that.  Retirement $ dwindled through the years helping our children with various things and I would not change that.  So here we are in our Golden albeit, "Tarnished" years with nothing but SS-LOL!  BUT, WE STILL COUNT OUR BLESSINGS!! Bill is still holding his own with the Multiple Myeloma cancer and God is good to us.  Here are some of his latest photos of the Mother Cardinal and her hatchlings.  He checks them every day and even rescued one that fell from the nest too soon this week.  The Mother has a sense of safeness with him and does not mind his picture snapping at all.
HELP BLOG SISTERS!!  I JUST TRIED TO DOWNLOAD PICTURES FROM MY PICTURE FILE ON THIS POST AND WHEN I CLICK ON THE ICON, IT GOES TO THE CHOICES OF WEB, URL OR PICASA AND NOT MY PICTURE FILE!!  THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE AND IS UPSETTING.  IF ANY OF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING THIS PROBLEM, PLS COMMENT OR E-MAIL ME ASAP AND HOW DO I FIX IT????  GO FIGURE!
   Thank you for your visit and your help.

I am a senior also and have social security and a small penion from my late husband. My paydays come the 2nd Wed of every month. I know how it is to pinch the pennies and I too try to help the kids and grandchildren when I can. Charity begins at home.
Computers are a work of science but they can drive you a little bonkers at times.

Have a good week.

Kerrie, since you have posted a picture since this you probably figured out that Blogger pulled back the release of the newest photo uploader. I haven't seen many people who like what they call the "picture picker", though it isn't impossible if you learn to use it. Unfortunately, they did not release it with instructions. Well, duh.
